MUSÉE DE L'HOMME : Us and them
Musée de l'Homme - MNHN
Us and Them - from stereotypes to racism: temporary exhibition at the Musée de l'Homme
This exhibition launches a programme centered on contemporary issues.
We have made several devices:
- The categories roller: this spectacular installation introduces the exhibition. The pictures of twenty people, classified by physical, social and religious groups are projected at scale 1 on a cylinder space. The aim here is to show how we classify human beings by types and how this natural habit can easily drift towards bias and casual racism.
- A number of multimedia programs inspired by social psychological tests, give the visitor the opportunity of experiencing and understanding the mechanisms leading to stereotypes and rejection towards others.
- 3 animated films question science, especially genetics, to understand humanity's diversity.
